Ex-General Secretary of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Resigns Over Gay-Bathhouse Link

The former general secretary of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) resigned Tuesday shortly before a report allegedly linking him to hookup apps and a stay at a “gay bathhouse” in Las Vegas.

Using commercially available records of app signal data, The Pillar found that a mobile device correlated to Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill allegedly emitted signals in 2018, 2019 and 2020 from Grindr, the largest and most popular gay hookup app in the world, on almost a daily basis. The signals came from both Burrill’s USCCB office and USCCB residence, from USCCB meetings, and from USCCB events, the publication reported.

The Pillar did not find evidence that Burrill was in contact with minors through Grindr. The USCCB did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Burrill was made general secretary of the USCCB in November 2020, according to The Pillar, the highest ranking role for a member of the American clergy who has not been made bishop. He formerly helped coordinate bishops’ responses to 2018 sexual abuse scandals within the Catholic Church.
